Services on CF

Attended a session on the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 this afternoon. I haven't looked at CF since I came to Compassion over a year ago and so I was quite disappointed to discover that the System.Configuration namespace is not implemented in the new version. For us this is problematic since our Service Agent Framework relies on IConfigurationSectionHandler in order to read information about the service agent types, mock messages, and logging that the framework does on the client.

As a result, if we want to expose our services to mobile clients we'll need to write a Mobile Service Agent Framework that relies on custom XML configuration files as described in the book I wrote with Jon Box back in 2003. We can't simply use a web reference proxy since we also rely on custom SOAP headers that the proxy does not create.
